Cluain Beag is situated on the rising slopes of Slieve Mish half way along The Dingle Peninsula. A perfect retreat for those who want to get away from it all. The views are stunning and the large garden, although some of it a little wild, has plenty of room for visiting dogs and children, who are welcome. The house is simply furnished and has an open fire in the sitting room and the well equipped spacious kitchen, with a range, is the hub of the house.
The kitchen has a large table which can be extended to seat 8 people quite comfortably. The range is very efficient and in addition to cooking it also heats the water and the radiators. There is also a combination microwave which does just about everything and there's a washer/dryer. The sitting room has two sofa's, which it could be said have seen better days but they are comfy, there is a TV, plenty of books, games and oodles of maps and information books and, of course, the open fire. All the bedrooms are freshly painted and beds are comfortable. Bathroom has an electric shower and bath. There are even two dog beds available which your pets are welcome to use. As the house is frequented by our own dogs and visiting dogs, forgive us if the odd dog hair is over looked also should you be allergic to pet hair this may not be the right place for you. Occasionally asthma sufferers can also have problems possibly due to the abundance of Fuscia. It is important to point out that this is a very rural location and nature is never very far away. The house is always meticulously cleaned before the arrival of guests so please don't think that the presence of spiders and their webs suggests otherwise, cobwebs can appear overnight and on wet days its hard to prevent mud from being trodden into the hallway. However, these minor faults are more than made up for by the stunning views and for star gazers on clear nights you will be delighted to see constellations rarely visible, but up here with little light pollution you can see them all, in fact a star has been officially named named Ballinahunt by one of our guest! Welcome to the Slieve Mish!
The entire house and garden are all part of the let.
